Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2019: Kikagaku Moyo + The Soft Moon + Iceage e.a.

Fuzz Club, organised by the label of the same name in partnership with Eindhoven Psych Lab, in that city’s imperious Effenaar venue, is ostensibly a ‘psych fest’. It’s a little steelier than most, perhaps – there is more psychedelia of the skull-crushing, motoric and guitar-based variety than there are whacked-out interdimensional synth voyages – but psychedelia it remains.

In the wider world, psych is somewhat on the wane in 2018, having hit a soaring high four or five years ago. In Liverpool, the annual International Festival of Psychedelia – one of Europe’s largest – was the undisputed daddy of the Scouse music calendar, a cosmic celebration imbued with a sense of starry-eyed optimism, a friendliness and community spirit.

After last year’s Fuzz Club Eindhoven, and before our ears had even stopped ringing, The Fuzz Club promoters began working on round two. Today we’re unbelievably excited to share the first seventeen bands who are set to play at FCE19 – taking place once again at the Effenaar over August 23rd-24th. You can find the line-up as it stands as well as a link to early-bird tickets below.

So, topping the bill will be everyone’s favourite Japanese mavericks Kikagaku Moyo, who will be bringing their transcendental blend of minimalist psychedelia, Eastern folk and krautrock. Also joining them will be Iceage and their twisted post-punk drawl and The Soft Moon, whose pounding cocktail of industrial, EBM and darkwave will be shaking floors in the early hours.

On top that there will be The KVB’s icy synth-pop, the shadowy drone-rock of Tess Parks and shoegazing legends The Warlocks and The Telescopes. Plus further Japanese hypnosis courtesy of Minami Deutsch, synth-punk workouts from Rendez-Vous and droning garage-psych from Alan Vega proteges The Vacant Lots. Oakland cosmonauts Lumerians, Chilean heavyweights Vuelveteloca and South African noise-pop duo Medicine Boy. We’ll also be bringing back Berlin post-punk outfit The Underground Youth and Porto krautrockers 10 000 Russos.

Bands for 2019 + more to be announced
Kikagaku Moyo, The Soft Moon, Iceage, The KVB, Tess Parks, The Underground Youth, The Warlocks, The Telescopes, The Vacant Lots, Lumerians , Whispering Sons, Rendez-Vous, Iguana Death Cult, Minami Deutsch, 10 000 Russos, Medicine Boy en Vuelveteloca.

Dutch experimentalists RMFTM (fka Radar Men From The Moon) have already showcased their collaborative mastery when they teamed up with Salford’s Gnod for the Temple ov BBV project last year and having now retired the former output, the Eindhoven four-piece are back with a brand new collab LP with fellow label-mates 10,000 Russos. Portuguese trio 10,000 Russos are best known for conjuring up concrete slabs of kosmische psych-rock and now, having teamed up with RMFTM, their repetitive droning mantras have manifested into a whole new beast – the looped, motorik chants feeding perfectly off RMFTM’s throbbing free-form jams.
Released August 25th, 2018

Eindhoven based RMFTM are an instrumental rock band consisting of Glenn Peeters, Jan-Titus Verkuijlen, Tony Lathouwers and Bram van Zuijlen. Their approach on the psychedelic rock scene is rather broad. By taking different genres in to account such as; shoegaze, neo-psych, kraut, space and noise rock, they take off in an interstellar exploration of new sounds.

Eindhoven based RMFTM are an instrumental rock band consisting of Glenn Peeters, Jan-Titus Verkuijlen, Tony Lathouwers and Bram van Zuijlen. Their approach on the psychedelic rock scene is rather broad. By taking different genres in to account such as; shoegaze, neo-psych, kraut, space and noise rock, they take off in an interstellar exploration of new sounds. Their debut album ‘Echo Forever’ (released on Fuzz Club Records) has sold out after two EU headline tours in 2013 and various one-off shows at the likes of: Roadburn Festival 2013, Duna Jam 2013, the reverb conspiracy festival 2012, Freak Valley festival 2013, Desertfest Berlin and Eindhoven psych lab. The 2014 released record, ´Strange Wave Galore´, delivers a new sonic experience on the senses.

“Overwhelming, atmospheric & highly immersive. As far as space, stoner & psychedelic rock goes, this is one of the best albums 2012 has to offer. Don’t miss it!”
“There’s something very refreshing and alien to these latest seven tracks, but that’s not to say the Radar Men are entirely unfamiliar sounding. Like dehydrated space food, you’ve tasted these flavors before, just never in such a form”.
